Five New Pictures of the Huntress from Arrow



I finally caught up on four episodes of Arrow on Sunday, and while the show doesn’t exactly have me riveted (I watched the last three while simultaneously playing World of Warcraft because Valor Points, baby, Valor Points), it seems to me that the show is still sketching out the borders of its frame, still setting the stage for what it ultimately wants to say, and so I’m still mildly interested. Helping along my interest are small moments with the show’s considerable female cast (although I find the dialogue between Laurel and her friend at the legal aid office to be laughably bad), like Thea’s defenses of her understandable brokenness, the lovely awkward lady hacker character who just came on the scene, and the moment when Laurel totally rescued Ollie from a buttwhooping. Also, John Barrowman has finally started making appearances and that’s fun.

But more than any of that, I’m honor bound to stick with the show at least through the introduction of Helena Bertinelli, the Huntress, scourge of the Cosa Nostra.

(Here’s hoping that if they go for the “she was inspired by Ollie” thing that she at least is as competent at ending bad guys as he is.)

    I just got to the episode with John Barrowman but I’m not totally sold on it. Hopefully it will continue to improve.

    The 1st episode will still be up on Hulu for about 24 hours, so now is a good time to start! (Then it’ll go to HuluPlus I think.)
